How to Become Involved

The CTI-CFF’s formal partners include governmental, inter-governmental and non-government organizations who support the CTI-CFF Regional Secretariat and the CTI National Coordinating Committees in achieving the goals specified by the CTI Regional Plan of Action.

The partners play an important role in sustaining the Coral Triangle by providing technical and scientific expertise; funding for priority conservation and sustainability projects; and activities at the regional, national and community level. Partners also support the CTI-CFF in the preparation of reports and
studies; and communications support to increase public awareness about the Coral Triangle and the CTI-CFF.

The CTI-CFF also engages individuals and other stakeholders such as academic and private sector institutions, in various projects at the regional and national level.
